  • Keith Uhlich

    The early scenes of Gabe Ibáñez’s impressively mounted but uneven thriller do some terrific dystopian world-building.

    With all of its glaring faults, Automata has some shining moments, most of which come during the surprisingly emotional climax.

    Once the film hits the desert, a little before the halfway point, Jacq has the energy sucked out of him and so does the film, limping along while he repeatedly throws histrionic fits.

  • Roger Moore

    Yet another “Blade Runner” knock-off, a sci-fi dystopia about robots getting too smart for humanity’s own good on an already sun-cooked Earth.

  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Visually inspired but thematically derivative.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    There are interesting ideas here, but they are swallowed up in dull, poorly choreographed shootouts and other action nonsense.

  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    The performances range wildly from high (Banderas) to low (Birgitte Hjort Sørensen as Jacq’s pregnant wife) to you-must-be-kidding (Melanie Griffith as both a scientific genius and a prostitute android).

  • Mike D'Angelo

    Automata approximates the look and feel of idea-driven science fiction, but it doesn’t have any actual ideas. That future looks bleak.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Chris Packham

    Automata has moments of tremendous visual and storytelling elegance which are punctuated with ham-fisted characterization and thunderingly terrible acting.

  • Odie Henderson

    Science fiction is often used in allegorical fashion. It may not be fair to judge Automata by this gauge, but the film is so deathly somber and heavy-handed that I can only assume director Gabe Ibáñez wanted to tell us Something Important. Full Review
  • Clayton Dillard

    Much like a spate of recent summer blockbusters, there's a tiring sense that every single facet of the narrative has to be rendered with truculent solemnity.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Jonathan Holland

    The overwrought, uncontrolled sci-fi thriller Automata is a disappointing example of a film which lacks the imagination to follow persuasively through on its engaging initial premise.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jay Weissberg

    Even for sci-fi, some logic has to enter the plot, which also needs to be devoid of major holes if it’s not to fall into ridiculousness, and that, unfortunately, is where Automata lies.
